If you’d ask me what my favorite scent by Lush is, I’d hesitate between answering Intergalactic and Celebrate. They’re both amazing scents, and I’m obsessed with getting every product that’s ever been made with this scent. Luckily, the lovely Laura (@glitterybaths) would sell me her Intergalactic Body Scrub, because she isn’t a big fan of the Intergalactic scent. It’s not for sale at the moment, but I’m hoping it will be someday.

What is it?

Lush Intergalactic Body Scrub was part of the Kitchen box in December 2023. Usually I don’t write about products that aren’t in stock, but since this is one of my favorite products, I just felt the need to write about it. And hopefully Lush will pick up the hint about eventually releasing this product as AYR! This body scrub is a 290 grams pot filled with a gorgeous looking scrub, ranging colors from yellow to blue to green. It’s so beautiful to look at! I love how the Intergalactic colors are the same for almost all products—the bubble bar, the bath bomb, and so forth.

The Intergalactic scent family is well known amongst Lushies, thanks to the popular Intergalactic Bath Bomb. There’s also a bubble bar available, and a shower gel. There used to be a showder as well, and there’s also a Intergalactic Glitter Mist for sale in a few selected stores in the UK.

What’s inside?

Ingredients: Caster Sugar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cornstarch (Zea mays), Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Olea europaea), Perfume, Organic Illipe Butter (Shorea stenoptera), Mango Butter (Mangifera indica), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Grapefruit Oil (Citrus paradisi), Vetivert Oil (Vetiveria zizanoides), Cedarwood Oil (Juniperus virginiana), Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Lactic Acid, Lauryl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, Limonene, Linalool, Colour 47005:1, Colour 42090, Colour 45410:2, Colour 17200

The body scrub doesn’t only contain a good range of butters (like cocoa butter, illipe butter and mango butter), it also contains olive oil, peppermint oil, grapefruit oil, vetivert oil and cedarwood oil. It’s a sugar based scrub, which tends to be a little more gentle than sea salt based scrubs. The texture of the scrub is pretty mild, there are no gritty bits of sugar. This makes the body scrub ideal to use a few times in the week without worrying about damaging your skin.

Scent

I’ve written about the Intergalactic scent quite a few times now, but I think I’ll stick to this description: “A fresh, minty scent that’s not too minty–not like chewing gum. The grapefruit oil really enhances the minty notes, while the smoky aroma of vetivert and woody aroma of cedarwood balance out the overpowering minty notes. All together they create a wonderful, fresh and uplifting minty scent.” I do think the body scrub has less of the smoky aroma than the other Intergalactic products, to me the body scrub is mainly peppermint with a sliiight note of grapefruit to make the overall scent a tad more fruity. But to my husband’s nose, it’s “just peppermint”.

What do I think?

I’m positively surprised that the body scrub is super mild and gentle on the skin! The mixed colors ensure you have different colors of scrub every time you use this product, which I love. A bit of blue and yellow result in a green scrub! As you can see above, I took out of rather thin slice of the scrub out of the pot, and massaged this onto wet skin. It’s way too much for just one arm, which means this product is very economical in use. I think I could cover my entire upper body half with just a thin slice of the scrub! When in contact with water, the scrub lathers up, making it super easy to massage across the skin.

After using it, my skin doesn’t only feel super soft and free of tiny bumps, it has a gorgeous glow—almost like a mirror! I don’t notice my skin being more hydrated though. It’s not as dry and flaky as usual, but with the amount of butters in this scrub, I was hoping for a bit more hydration. (Lush, this is your chance to bless us with a Intergalactic body lotion!) I was also hoping for a bit more scent lingering on my skin, but it’s a very faint peppermint scent that I’m able to pick up. This is where our Intergalactic Glitter Mist comes in handy.

All in all, I’m in love with this scrub. The vibrant colors, the gentle texture of the scrub, the amazing scent. This cosmic scrub is a must have for every Intergalactic fan out there. While I’m aware that it’s not for sale right now, I do hope Lush will release it as AYR someday. In the meanwhile, you can check out Vinted or one of the Lush Facebook groups if you’re really eager to get your hands on this product.
